I have an audition Saturday (8/25). They want all the kids to sing Do Re Mi. The height limit is 5'2 and I'm 5'1. I'm 12 (and I'm a boy). They're going to have dance too. I've been in lots of shows at this theatre (kind of a regular; i've been in shows without auditioning). This theatre has a partnership with the drama camp that I go to and lots of kids from my camp get referred to auditions at this theatre. Usually, if you were really good at camp, then you'll get an email (along with 30 other people) or a phone call about an audition. I like emails because my mom knows basically everyone's email in theatre (a lot are also really obvious; i.e. last names), so I'm prepared for competition. I only know 4 of the other boys on that Sound of Music email. One is a blond kid, (i have brown hair), i think his acting is kind of sucky and his voice is bland and possibly changed
. He thinks he's all that (but got sick for the holiday musical audition last year
! ). One of them is sort of my friend (but I'm competitive when it comes to auditions, so I'm not wishing him luck; weird superstition that when I wish someone luck, they get the part and I don't). The other 2 are brothers. The younger one is better than the older one, but looks 6 (he's 8 ) and the bigger one can't sing. Besides, their mom said that even if they get the part, she won't let them be in another show at this theatre (the little one was in Miracle on 34th Street last year and the late nights were to hard on him. He missed a show without notice and I went on for him, a 6 year old character, i'm 12, 5 minutes til showtime). Should I audition for Kurt or Friedrich? My brother and my friend say I could do either and that it depends if the director wants older or younger children.
